I was interested in knowing their colonies in Sindh area. Some of aroras claim they earlier resided in al aror and hence their name Arira as Bkhatris of bakhter later adopted khatri name just dropping B from their earlier identity.

Khatri seems an apabhramsha of Kshatriya(warrior varna).

Moreover, Indo-Greeks were small in number and they were later destroyed by Indo-Scythians.

Not at all.
Vedic Kashtriyas lac H haplogroup present in khatris so Bakhatri adopting khatri is just sanskritization of an alien identity.

Neither Indo Greeks were too small nor were destroyed by scythians.

They had lived here much before Alexander.Slowly they adopted local dialect ,custom and traditions and merged with local population.

Though genetics is a conclusive proof in such cases but rule is rule and I agree to that .

Rajesh Kocchar is a good Historian and a Khatri himself .He seems to agree with my research here that Aora/Khatris are Yavnas of Ancient India.

I am not sure nor against it about yavana origin. But Khatri is an apabhramsha of Kshatriya, similarly among Nepalese apabhramsha of Kshatriya is Chhetri.

Yes Khatri is just apabhramsh but khatris adopted this via sanskritization as most khatri /aroras are basically traders like Banias and same was observed by Risley ,Rose and others in colonial period.
